OKLAHOMA CITY – Oklahoma Highway Patrol troopers arrested a man after they received a YouTube video link showing the 30-year-old driving over 190 mph on the Kilpatrick Turnpike on Monday, December 20.

Dee Albert Replogle was arrested Monday night on two counts of reckless driving and booked into the Oklahoma County Jail.

The YouTube videos show Replogle driving his super-charged Chevy Corvette over 190 mph on the Kilpatrick Turnpike and on I-235 Monday afternoon.

"I was extremely concerned with Mr. Replogle's reckless driving and thought the YouTube posts might encourage others to do the same thing in order to garner attention; and our roadways are absolutely no place for this type of dangerous driving behavior or stunts," said Colonel Van Guillotte, OHP Chief of Patrol.

Troopers were able to track down the 30-year-old and obtain statements indicating that he was the owner, driver and personally responsible for the YouTube posts. The Oklahoma County District Attorney's Office was equally concerned and aided in obtaining arrest warrants for Replogle.
